The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict

November 30, 2010

Westcliffe Publishers has one new Colorado title which was recently released.

I read Cadillac Desert by Marc Reisner back in 1986.  According to a Worldcat search, it’s been revised several times since.  When you grow up next to the Colorado River, it’s fascinating to learn what happens to the river after it flows by your town.

That’s why I hope to soon read the new Westcliffe Publishers release, The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict by Peter McBride & Jonathan Waterman.  Maybe after you watch the video below, you’ll want to read it too.

    Great idea, to follow it down.

    There was another book out a few years ago that I hoped would have more effect: A River No More, by Philip Fradkin.

    Any of them go well with the journals of John Wesley Powell.

    There is no river like it anywhere else on Earth, really.
